Listed as one of Europe’s fastest growing tech companies by the FT for 2020 as well as winning numerous TIGA and other awards several years in a row, our journey’s only just begun.

We’re always looking for good people – so if you’re a great person and an amazing developer we’d love to hear from you.

In Certification & Compliance we ensure that Avakin Life complies with first party guidelines established by the app stores, like the Apple Appstore or the Google Play Store. For an app to be present on the app stores, it needs to comply with their guidelines. These also intent to protect users’ privacy and safety and they’re constantly evolving. Being up to date with the latest guidelines is extremely important and we want you to help us be on top of our game! As a Certification & Compliance specialist, your input will be highly valuable and you’ll get to work closely with other departments like production or development. In addition, you’ll also get to be up to date with news of the mobile industry, know about gadgets and technologies and tinker with the latest flagship phones and tablets by a wide range of manufacturers, from Apple’s iPhones to Samsung or Huawei’s innovative devices.
